Iraq’s manuscripts: Museum seeks more funds to protect treasures


The Iraq Museum is home to a precious collection of ancient manuscripts, some dating back to the 12th century.
The museum officially reopened in 2015, 12 years after it was closed after the US-led invasion.
But it still lacks funds to protect the treasures in its care.
